I know that DEC Fortran did this, I know you can just concatenate

Also, although not often used, an object file can contain more than
one object module.
Interesting. How can such an object file be built ?
Ah ok. I think we won't support this now...
A multiple module object file inserted into an archive doesn't remain so
The members in the VMS object library are modules, not files. Multiple
modules in one file end up as multiple members in the library. A file
with multiple modules differs from a library in that you need to read
the symbol table from each module where the library has an additional
symbol table for all modules.
